ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court made public on Monday a list of journalists and media-men who were allegedly paid by the information ministry through its secret fund.
The list contains itemised particulars of those expenditures for which the information ministry now does not claim privilege or secrecy.The list of disbursements, totaling up to 1.7 billion rupees, was uploaded on the SC website in accordance to the Supreme Court’s directive issued earlier during the day.The apex court had also ordered for the list to be made public on its website.
Earlier last year, the court had begun its probe and sought information and froze the funds of the information ministry after the petitioners had sought a probe and requested an end to the secret funds of the information ministry.
